rhinkle had been waiting for us to be able to try this one together, so I broke one coin in half and threw it in the gaiwan tonight to eat with the daifuku we just finished making. Gave it one wash and the following steep produced a very light liquor that became a deeper gold over subsequent steeps.
From the very first steep, this one has a super smooth texture and a delicate floral flavor that eventually reveals fruitiness and a hint of underlying creaminess.
A few steeps in the qi hits suddenly. A few more steeps later and a distinct sweetness emerges. The material in this ended up being quite broken up, but this was still very good!
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Fruity, Smooth, Sweet
